In brief: Atypical chest pain

Your pain is not anginal in character so it is not likely to be do to coronary artery disease.
The underlying cause of your extra heartbeats should be clarified by a careful listening for a heart murmur, check of your blood pressure, careful taking of your history, and perhaps an echocardiogram. Your esophagus could be another source of pain (inflammation or reflux of stomach acid).
